    Putin and Argentine Leader Agree on Nuclear Power Project

    It is indicative of the times that Putin would be making forays into South America. That is the price of a disorderly withdrawal from providing security around the world as the US has been doing recently. The price could be high, if proliferation and enemy military bases around the region follow. Of course Putin says the reactor is for purely peaceful purposes. But that was the story in India, Pakistan and Iran too. The developments are worth watching:

    "Russia will help build the third reactor of a nuclear power plant in Argentina, Mr. Putin said after meeting with the Argentine president, Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, here on Saturday.

    Both leaders said the nuclear projects would be for peaceful purposes.
    ....
    Russia also hopes to build bases in Argentina for its satellite system and cooperate over the use of military technology, Mr. Putin said, including the use of Russian planes and helicopters in the sector of Antarctica claimed by Argentina. Russian companies may also take part in the construction of two hydroelectric plants here.
    .....
    He is also expected to sign a nuclear agreement with Brazil, a Russian official said, and he will hold talks with President Dilma Rousseff of Brazil before a meeting next week of the emerging market nations known as the Brics group: Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa.
    .....
    Mrs. Kirchner has accused Western leaders of hypocrisy over Crimea: She said they refused to acknowledge the result of a referendum in Crimea, in which people voted to join Russia, but they did not complain about a similar vote held last year in which residents of a British-controlled archipelago that is claimed by Argentina chose to remain British."

    Brazil is getting itself cozy with the EU but not with america.
    Russia is getting cozy with Russia.
    many african despots are straying away from EU and US money for development aid and taking up the no-strings attached (strings are pro-democracy strings from EU and US) money from China, so moving closer to it.
    Russia and China are having an uneasy partnership.
    Most asian and SE asian are trying to form closer ties to the USA out of fear of China.
    India is getting in bed with Russia, so is Iran.
    Pakistan is in bed with the US.


    After 25 years since the cold war ended, the world is yet again strafing and forming into macro coalitions.
    China is one.
    Russia is the other.
    It is yet unclear if the EU and the US will be serving together towards a common goal of a peaceful and democratic world or whether we, here in the EU, will adopt the same positions we have for the past years, the middle men, the great compromisers trying to glue things together and tagging along rather than leading the way.

    That is about right. We are watching a period of re-multi-polarization, which will bring us back to the old structures and architecture we know from before ww2. Where we seem to differ in is the the feasibility of a common goal approach within a multi-polar structure. As I see it history does not produce stability that way. This is also, what game theory says. Thus, if we allow that type of architecture to evolve we will all be dead. Keynes says that is normal. What is different here is that we will all go together.

    So the ones that deal with China go away from it while they ones that do not deal with China are getting closer to it. Some observations should have been in order (among many other things) for African leaders, despots or not.

    What's wrong with Russia doing the same thing as the US?
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy
